I guess there are no hummers in heaven

Rick Santorum:

One of the things I will talk about that no president has talked about before is I think the dangers of contraception in this country, the whole sexual libertine idea … Many in the Christian faith have said, “Well, that’s okay … contraception’s okay.”

It’s not okay because it’s a license to do things in the sexual realm that is counter to how things are supposed to be. They’re supposed to be within marriage, for purposes that are, yes, conjugal … but also procreative. That’s the perfect way that a sexual union should happen. We take any part of that out, we diminish the act. And if you can take one part out that’s not for purposes of procreation, that’s not one of the reasons, then you diminish this very special bond between men and women, so why can’t you take other parts of that out? And all of a sudden, it becomes deconstructed to the point where it’s simply pleasure. And that’s certainly a part of it—and it’s an important part of it, don’t get me wrong—but there’s a lot of things we do for pleasure, and this is special, and it needs to be seen as special.

Again, I know most presidents don’t talk about those things, and maybe people don’t want us to talk about those things, but I think it’s important that you are who you are. I’m not running for preacher. I’m not running for pastor, but these are important public policy issues.

Are you shitting me? What fucking century did he grow up in? Are married couples supposed to cut a hole in a sheet lest they have too much fun?

I couldn’t believe Santorum really said that shit until I watched the video for myself. We like to joke that Republicans are batshit insane, but this one really is.

    LOL! I have been surfing the conservative blogs, and even there the response is generally “Shut up, Ricky. You are sounding like a freak.”

    What’s even lamer than OWS?

    Until recently, religion had not been the main point for either the Tea Party or the establishment GOP. Not like the fundie movement in the 80s. But if religion vs atheism becomes the featured debate in this election (instead of the economy or foreign policy), atheism will make more noise but religion will win walking away in the voting booth. Gallup says so. Santorum is playing on that without being a Pat Robertson evangelical. So yeah, scary. But he does that thing Sarah is good at – uses his enemies for fuel.

      I think there’s a lot of space between religion and atheism, especially on this topic. Even if 90% of the population is “religious”, I’d say Ricky is at the far, far end of the religious spectrum.

    The Republicans have a problem. This man is a loon. The Republican primary voters are reacting to Obama’s health insurance targeted fight with the RC church and saying crazy shit to pollsters in reaction. When fundies get a full look at this Inquisition supporting whack job they will not like him any more than Romney. They have to get rid of him and quick. He is not mentally stable. And we thought Newtie was bad. Santorum can only win small state caucuses when it is snowing. Give Newt some money to run negative ads on his mental state and stealing taxpayer money to home school his thirty children.

    “In every society, the definition of marriage has not ever to my knowledge included homosexuality. That’s not to pick on homosexuality. It’s not, you know, man on child, man on dog, or whatever the case may be. It is one thing. And when you destroy that you have a dramatic impact on the quality.” –Rick Santorum, AP interview

    that’s all.
